Event Description

On Mondays, Spring 2011: January-February

African Butoh dancer, Edoheart, is leading a series of new classes focused on expanding the vocal possibilities of Butoh dance while training in the fundamental aspects of this art form. Edoheart is a multiple award-winning poet, singer, dancer and artist who has performed and lectured all over the world, most recently at The Living Theatre and Columbia University. Her style of butoh is based in imagery, poetry and form, seeking to turn the body into a living, glittering, telepathic sculpture. All classes will be held at the beautiful Movement Research studio at Eden’s Expressway.

No experience is necessary to dance butoh!

This class will focus on the butoh-fu forms that Hijikata explored and Waguri codified like that of the cat, bull, smoke, light and nerve walks and vocal aspects from Edoheart's exploration such as integrated free-improvisation group harmonies, sigh and yodel exercises, nerve talks and more- all aimed at improving participants' vocal range and strength.

Mondays (1/3, 1/10, 1/24, 1,31, 2/7, 2,14, 2/21, 2/28)
7:30-8:30pm
This class will begin with deepening, meditative exercises aimed at loosening the body and it's inhibitions and allowing participants to more easily enter the spaces necessary for transforming between fundamental physical and vocal forms and more elaborate ideas in the dance of darkness. In this class, students will be provided the opportunity to work on their own choreographies, rooted in poetry and imaginative creation of alternate spaces. Please bring a pen and paper/notepad!
$12 for a single class or $80 for the entire course (8 hours)
